Review and Evaluation
1. Learning through Problem-based experience engages my prior knowledge
and my previous contract experience as I get to relate to the different learning
theories. It enhance learning as, the cognitive knowledge complement the
experiential knowledge. Thus, making learning more meaningful.
This problem based learning experience allows me to work collaboratively with my
other group members. Through the process of working together to discover the
nature of a problem, understanding the constraints and options to its resolution. We
also learn to negotiate the complex nature of the problem before making decisions.
In order to make group learning effective, the group members need to work

2.The problem-based learning experience has definitely nurtured my competencies,
as I am better able to make links to learning theories. It also challenges me to reflect
some of my past experience and better improve on my personal beliefs, opinions
and pedagogical skills. I get to work with people of different personalities and learnt
how to accept differences. It allows me to be more active and more reflective in
learning process. Furthermore, I learnt how to encourage peers on when faced with
problems. I get to plan a timeline for the project and to be more aware of how to
manage my time in order to meet several datelines. Lastly, I learnt hoe to take
responsibility for own group’s direction and organize and direct the learning proc
3. Providence of an example of last year’s case and how did the student do it. Tutor
could provide us with comments on how last year’s student did so that we know
what are the pitfalls to avoid and areas of improvement.
4. Strengths: it’s user friendly and
5. Strengths: Simulate simulated real world working and professional contexts in
Limitations: Some part of the video were exaggerated, hence it may not best
represent the actual situation that we will face in school.
6. Student learnt best through experiential learning. An example of experiential
learning is going to the bird park and learning through observation and interaction
with the environment, as opposed to reading about birds from a book. Thus, one
makes discoveries and experiments with knowledge firsthand, instead of hearing or
reading about others' experiences.
